Aaron is a 2017 OF that shows athletic actions and some next level tools. At the plate, he hits from an open stance with fluid action in his hands and lower 1/2. He gets extension through the ball and hits from a firm front side, which produces a repeatable swing. Hitting to all fields and using his lower 1/2 will allow Aaron to drive the ball to the gaps more frequently. In the OF, he gets a quick first step, tracks it well, stays behind the ball and throws through his target with momentum. Overall, Aaron is a talented player and as he is only entering his junior season, has time on his side to develop a multitude of next level skills.
